Pumpin' Pal International (PPI) is dedicated to improving
the breast pumping experience by making it as comfortable and productive
as possible with Pumpin' Pal accessories for pumping moms. The reality
for today's mom is that pumping plays a major role in nursing. Our
theory is that if our products can make the process of breast pumping
more enjoyable, mothers will breast feed much longer, benefiting
both mother and baby.
With the combination of the Pumpin' Pal angled breast shields, "Super
Shields Plus", and the Pumpin' Pal "Original
Hands-Free Strap", breast pumping has never been more comfortable.
Mothers can avoid having to 'lean forward' and can now sit back
in a comfortable position, relaxing their arms rather than holding
bottles. The Pumpin' Pal mesh "Air-Dry
Accessory Bag" is perfect for drying freshly-washed pump parts - keeping
them together discretely and attractively.
We hope you use this site to educate yourself as we have added
several pages of information aimed at new mothers to help them
through these challenging and sometimes trying times. Breast
pumping can be confusing and awkward in the beginning - PPI is
here to help.
Breast Pumping Accessories
Pumpin' Pal's Super Shields Plus are a revolution in
breast pumping comfort. Most mothers need to lean forward in order
for the milk to flow freely into the bottle using standard flanges.
Our angled flange allows most moms to sit back comfortably. Super
Shields are Bisphenol A (BPA) free and now available in three sizes:
medium, large, and x-large. Read
Pumpin' Pal's Original Hands-Free Strap allows
mom to relax her arms while breast pumping or even do small tasks
like read a book, talk on the phone, or work on a computer. Designed
like a trapeze, it's perfect for mom returning
to work. She can pump easily and therefore continue her nursing and
pumping routine. Read
Pumpin' Pal's Air-Dry Accessory Bag is great for
keeping your breast pumping parts together while drying
at home, or transporting them to and from work. It's much more discrete
than laying the parts on towels or counters. Read

Embraced by professionals
Hospitals and Lactation Consultants across the country are using PPI's
Pumpin' Pal products to improve the breast pumping experience for
new mothers. The angled Super Shields are especially effective
for C-section mothers having a difficult time leaning forward to
pump. The tapered design is less abrasive on the area around the
nipple, so the flanges themselves are much more comfortable than
the standard flange design.
Often, I will work with a mom who repeatedly develops
a cut right around the base of the nipple. When this occurs,
I feel that the pressure from a straight flange tends to
be causing the problem. When you provide an angled shield,
the pressure on the base of the nipple is resolved."
